Governor Jerry Brown appointed California native Dana Gioia the state's poet laureate this past December. Gioia is an award-winning poet and the former chairman for the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2003, he compiled the anthology "California Poetry: From Gold Rush to the Present."

Gioia also has a new book coming out in March titled, "99 Poems, New and Selected."
